Top sunscreens for 2007

Stow-and-go
Try these no-spill options when you're on the run.

•Â Dermalogica Solar Defense Wipes SPF 15, 15 sheets, $28.60.

•Â Vichy Laboratoires Capital Soleil SPF 60 Ultra Protection Sunblock Stick for Sensitive Areas, 9 g, $18.

Body
"Glass is no barrier for UVA rays," says Dr. Lisa Kellett, a dermatologist at DLK in Toronto. "I keep a long-sleeved white shirt in my car to wear for added protection when I'm stuck in traffic."

•Â Neutrogena Fresh Cooling Sunblock Gel SPF 45, 118 mL, $14.99.

•Â La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 60 Face and Body Cream with Mexoryl XL, 100 mL, $26.

•Â RoC Minesol Mineral Sunblock Cream SPF 40, 150 mL, $26.

Face
"If you have breakout-prone skin, choose an oil-free formula, preferably gel- or alcohol-based," says Dr. Paul Cohen, a dermatologist at the Rosedale Dermatology Centre in Toronto. "If you have sensitive skin, go for SPF with titanium dioxide."

•Â Ombrelle Face Cream SPF 60, 75 mL, $16.99.

Shiseido Sun Protection Eye Cream SPF 32, 15 mL, $36.

Labello by Nivea UV Care SPF 30 lip balm, about $1.75.

•Â Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25 (tinted to enhance complexion), 40 mL, $21.50.

Easy Reapplication
Tip: Not all waterproof formulas are designed to withstand the acidity of heavy perspiration, so if sweating's your game, sweatproof is your key word.

•Â Coppertone Continuous Spray Sport SPF 30, 177 mL, $9.99.

•Â Aveeno Active Naturals Sunblock Spray SPF 45, 160 mL, $14.99.
